2021 Toyota GR Yaris sold out

It might not be gone in sixty seconds, but the 2021 Toyota GR Yaris has sold out and the website for pre-orders has temporarily been shut down. The first shipment of 1000 Toyota GR Yaris hot hatches has been allocated to customers and dealers across Australia after an overwhelming and unexpected response. Toyota Australia had initially forecast it could take up to 18 months to clear the first 1000 vehicles, and said it would review pricing once the first 1000 were sold.
